PSE&G Student Center Theater
Free to students and staff w/SCCC ID

The “Don’t We Boys” is dedicated to solving the mysteries of comedy by bringing action-adventure and fear into the sketch comedy arena. Expect a rough and tumble hour and a half of perilous satire by danger veterans Joe “Foot-in-the-Grave” Anderson, Dave “Bloody Mess” Lyzenga, and Matt “Safety First” Sterenberg. Sometimes the “Don’t We Boys” grow up long enough to do sketches about boring adult things like: going to work, paying monthly bills or regretting having children. Even these patently boring topics become heroic feats of comedy thanks to the (6) keen eyes and (3) silver tongues of the “Don’t We Boys”. This show has something for everyone…literally! But mostly the show is for people who like dangerous sketch comedy.

With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former Army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, WHITE CHRISTMAS.

Described as a “modern-day Victor Borge,” the multi-talented Mitchell ZeidwiG is one of a kind.

The first half of the show will include musical comedy routines and stunts while the second half is a “serious” piano concert where the virtuoso ZeidwiG will play a program entitled Gershwin on Hendrix. This performance will surely leave you laughing and you will find yourself stunned by the beauty and grace demonstrated in ZeidwiG’s command of the keys.
